[thelist] Script Timeout Problem

I knew this was going to happen one of these days.  This darn page takes
just too long to process.  Can anyone help me out with this error message
and advise what (and where) I should put in the Server.ScriptTimeOut
property.  I don't have access to the IIS admin tools.  How would I know
what the default timeout value is?

No indenting, sorry. Assuming this is classic ASP, you can set this property
in global.asa
Server.ScriptTimeOut=timeinseconds. I would put this in application_onstart

If you can't restart IIS to make it take account of the new version
global.asa, I found it useful to rename global.asa to something else, then
rename it back. This has the same effect as far as I recall.

You can probably set it in the individual script as well.
